Dear Sisters and Brothers, dear friends of the Petri-church,
God is close to us humans, his closeness overcomes what separates us from our fellow man and from God himself. This happens because the child in the manger opens our hearts. It is my wish that you experience this miracle at Christmas.
Heartfelt thanks for your support of the work of our congregation and our organ project.
On behalf also of our whole congregation and the church council,
Pastor Michael Schwarzkopf
Note regarding the angel on top of St. Petri church:
The re-dedication ceremony of this sculpture took place on Reformation Day. Its restoration was funded by the city (9.5 million rubles) to preserve historic and cultural monuments and also in recognition of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
